Country Stars Impersonate Celebrities … and It’s Awesome! [WATCH]
Imagine a world where Tyler Farr becomes Jason Aldean, who becomes Luke Bryan … where RaeLynn becomes Cher … where Jackson Michelson becomes Gollum from Lord of the Rings … where Miranda Lambert becomes some random woman named Janice Haggerty. Those are just a few of the celebrity impressions viewers will see in the video above, filmed when Taste of Country touched base with performers at the 2017 Taste of Country Music Festival in June to tap into their hidden talents for impersonating other celebrities — and each other.
They say that art imitates life, but maybe artists just imitate their friends, as with Aldean’s brief attempt at impersonating his pal Bryan. Farr, meanwhile, gives Aldean’s “Night Train” a fair shot, but best of all, perhaps, is Kip Moore giving a dead-ringer imitation of the Cadillac Three‘s Jaren Johnston and his slow intro to “White Lightning.”
Brooke Eden as Shakira? We’ll buy it. Pittsburgh boy Steve Moakler doing a solid New York accent? It’s in here. And one half of the up-and-coming band Smithfield pretty much nails former president Bill Clinton in one of his … uh, less-than-finest moments.
Oh, and then there’s Lambert’s introduction to her alter-ego Janice, a casserole-making homegirl from MinnesOOta. Trust us — you’ve gotta see it.
